Indeed, nothing (except truly trivial things like fixing a typo) should go
in without review. Of course it's still possible to merge your own commits
if another developer has reviewed them and commented that it's OK to do so.

Besides that, I think commit rights are also a kind of recognition for
making significant good quality contributions, and that it's healthy for
scipy to have a larger number of active developers which can review and
merge PRs.
